The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt confirmed for PS4



CD Projekt Red has just confirmed that The Witcher 3 will be released on PlayStation 4 in 2014.

The RPG, which uses the developers next-gen ready REDengine 3, The Witcher 3 will arrive alongside other versions of the game.

"We were thrilled when asked, several months ago, to be one of the developers who were granted early access to the PlayStation 4. It was an exciting moment to be invited to be in the company of other legendary developers like Bethesda, EA, LucasArts, Ubisoft or Activision as one of the teams working on titles shipping early in the PlayStation 4's lifecycle. Of course, we couldn't reveal any specifics about this to our fans, even though many journalists and forum members asked about when and how The Witcher might show up on Sony's console. After yesterday's PlayStation Meeting we can finally promise: The Witcher 3 is coming to the PlayStation 4. The new hardware gives us the opportunity to create something great. We are able to work with the new console from its birth and this allows our in-house REDengine 3 to push the graphical limits of what the PlayStation hardware can display. The console is fresh and has some innovative solutions that we're looking forward to using in our game" said Adam Badowski, head of CD Projekt RED studio.

Yesterday Sony confirmed the release of their new console and distinguished CD Projekt RED as one of the developers creating games for the new platform.

"It's a real pleasure to cooperate with Sony. Combining CD Projekt RED's unique artistic vision and tech with the capabilities of PlayStation 4 will make The Witcher 3 a truly next-gen RPG. With Sony's new hardware and our new engine, there are no limits to what we can create in the process of realizing our vision for Geralt's dark fantasy world," commented Adam Kiciski, CEO of CD Projekt SA.

"The Witcher 3 will be released in 2014 simultaneously on all high-end platforms available. We know that our fans are looking forward to that date already, but we want to make it clear that this story is a standalone, and we will be sure introduce newcomers fully to the world so that they don't miss a beat. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will start with an breathtaking opening, which will give many insights to the lore. The game design will allow smooth introduction to new characters and encourage players to discover the vast, living open world of this installment of Geralt's tale."

I would love to see 1 and 2 streamed via Gaikai so I can finally play them. Interesting that there was no confirmation for Cyberpunk coming to PS4. That's the CDPR title I'm more interested in!

I'm really hoping for Cyberpunk on consoles too, I really enjoyed Witcher 2, but scifi is more my bag.

Didn't they say earliest they'll be ready is 2015? Figure it will hit consoles but not until they are a bit more settled.

The intro to the witcher 2 was amazing. If any of you guys/girls haven't seen it yet go look for it on YouTube, its amazing. Will definately look into getting the 3rd one, just hoping for a more open world which I think they have confirmed already?

Couple of tweaks as said above to te inventory and combat system and it will be amazing! The opening to witches 2 was awesome LFC by water! And I agree that they need to make a bit more of an open world but not much that it compares to skyrim. This is great news and look forward to more developments! Well done Cd Projekt!

That didn't take long. But they kind of confirmed it when they said its going to be out for next gen platforms. This game certainly looks very ambitious though. I'm kind of interested in what they can do with the AI as opposed to the scope of the world.

I'm glad CD ProjektRED are continuing The Witcher series. It's imo one of the last great true RPG experiences. Too many games that are out or coming out offer a watered-down action orientated RPG-lite style of gameplay. It's good that they have retained a lot of depth in both games.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
